Grand panorama of London from the Thames
This engraving has reproduced fairly well with a few blurred patches; much of the detail can be discerned in the 24 pages of scans, though a somewhat higher resolution would have been welcome. Relatively little of the artwork has been lost between the pages. The panorama begins at the 'New Houses of Parliament' and proceeds downstream, recording the townscape of the river's northern bank. At Greenwich Reach, it crosses the river,depicting Greenwich Hospital and Deptford Dockyard on the southern bank. The amount and variety of shipping increases as we progress downstream, with many types of sailing vessels, paddle-steamers, Thames barges and even a racing skiff. Well worth downloading.
